to be in the first term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do the thing that is barack obama when you sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> piers i do believe the economy is ip pron proving. one of the reasons the economy is improving is that it was brave. it was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that. i believe that gives us a chance to move forward on a series of fronts and further strengthen our economy. we are not losing 800,000 jobs a month anymore. we are gaining them. and that foundation that has been laid it is a foundation on which we can build progress. >> one is i understand that the first

term. there are parallels to reagan and clinton who had first terms and successful economies for the second terms. that emboldened them to be braver than they might have been. are you hoping you are going to get the kind of economic security if not prosperity in this term that will allow you to do, perhaps, the things that barack obama when he sailed in on hope and change hoped he could do? >> well, piers, i do believe the economy is improving. but i want to challenge a bit of your premise, one of the reasons the economy is improving is because this president was brave. it was brave to intervene and save the auto industry, which was not a popular decision at the time. it was brave to move forward on the recovery act. which again was not popular at the time. without that, we would have slid into a second great depression. it was brave to stand up the financial industry when it was on collapse. even though that was an unpopular thing to do. because he understand that we needed to move the economy forward. and now we are reaping the benefits of that bravery and good decisions be

term will be how does he get some kind of bipartisan momentum going, particularly on the economy and this is your wheelhouse right now. you've got some pretty firm ideas about how to prevent the fiscal cliff becoming a reality. tell me about that. >> well, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff. as the nonpartisan congressional budget office said, it will reduce gdp by almost 3% and keep in mind it's only 2% now so that means going negative, going back to recession. they predicted that unemployment would go back over 9% which would be terrible, obviously, and many other negative consequences. so they should do at least a temporary extension so they can buy themselves a little time for the new congress to get organized and new administration to get settled, and then get this thing solved as quickly as possible after that. so with the financial services roundtable, we asked them to bridge over with some extensions but then tackle it. that's going to have to include the president stepping forward and willingness to reform entitlement programs and on the republican side, they'll need to l

good economy in the clinton years. the rising tide lifts all boats, including small businesses that might be hit by the clinton era taxes, instead of the current taxes, so -- there's a more basic issue here, piers. the rich do not generate jobs, they are not job creators. the job creators in america are the vast middle class whose spending generate jobs because businesses that have more business will generate more jobs. businesses with more customers will expand and hire people. if the middle class doesn't have the money, either because their taxes go up or because they simply are on a downward trajectory in an economy that is not -- really has not been good to the middle class since george w. bush was president, then we are in trouble in terms of the kind of job growth we need. >> final question to you. the average americans go, of course they should pay a bit more tax. what the hell is the matter of them? the country is in trouble, they are the richest, share a bit of the load. >> when you raise taxes, you discourage things, discourage investment, job creation. we have a litt
